The attitudinal components (c), (d) and (e) indicate the typical arrogance and egotism of a wanker. They feel a sense of material, social and intellectual superiority over other people. A wanker perceives themselves to be knowledgeable and in possession of information that is inaccessible or material goods that are unattainable to other people.

Line (f) explains that a wanker is opinionated and feel their opinion is valuable. Self-absorbed and egotistical they are extroverted, confident, highly opinionated and dogmatic in their interaction with other people as a result of their exaggerated and delusional self-perception.

Components (g), (h) and (i) indicate that a wanker is boastful, brags, is self-indulgent and feels a sense of superiority. Line (j) indicates that although wankers perceive themselves to be important and impressive others see them as annoying and vainglorious. A wanker is a selfish, inconsiderate conversationalist. They are solely concerned with discussing their own interests, oblivious to their co-conversationalists.

Component (k) suggests that a wanker is socially reproved for their bad social behaviour. Line (l) suggests that the word is perceived as socially unacceptable. Wanker is a mildly offensive term due to the sexual connotations of the term. In the progressive social climate of Australia ‘some’ although very few people may take offence at hearing this word. Wanker is widely accepted and used frequently in the media.
